Ligue 1: Strasbourg stop Nantes


In the wake of their three consecutive victories, the Canaries were provisional leaders of the League after Kalifa Coulibaly opened the scoring (28th). Their illusions lasted only forty minutes, until the deserved equalization of Strasbourg, signed Liénard (66th), then the penalty Ajorque (r89e), synonymous with victory Strasbourg – the first in Ligue 1 since April.

What you must remember

Strasbourg's success seems justified, as Racing has been dominant over the entire game. Very successful, Nantes had opened the scoring on the only shot in the first period.

The man of the match

Dimitri Liénard. With a cross shot of the left foot, the Strasbourg midfielder was the author of the tying goal (1-1, 66th). To the delight of the Meinau, who was desperate to see his team return to the score. Present at the club since 2013, passed by the National and Ligue 2, Liénard, 31, belongs to the category of humble, generous and emblematic players of the current RCSA.

The number

7. Strasbourg records its first win in the league this season. In Ligue 1, the Alsatians end a series of seven games without a win at La Meinau, between their success on Reims 4-0 on April 3, 2019 and tonight.
